This past weekend I was able to finally get away with my daughter Faith for an overnight trip, just the two of us. It is something I have planned to do with my girls every two years from the age of eight. I stole the idea from a friend several years ago, and I’m so glad I did. It was our second time to do this, and we both have been looking forward to it for a long time. You can find our first Mommy and Me Day here. Faith ended up having to wait longer than two years since I had a nursing baby for a year that fell right at the wrong time for our outing.
Faith is a foodie. We get along really well in this respect! She loves cheese so I decided to take her to The Melting Pot Friday night. We waited for Daddy to come home, literally looking out the window anticipation was so high. I had made reservations, but traffic was horrible, and I am not an aggressive driver in traffic so the drive was kind of agonizing, but we only arrived there fifteen minutes late and didn’t have any problem getting a table.
I have always been a little worried when my fondue has come out a stringy, but if The Melting Pot’s fondue comes out stringy too I must be doing okay. 🙂 It was delicious! She did say she liked mine a little better though. Brownie points for her!
At first we didn’t think we were going to be full with the two cheese fondues but by the time we finished the chocolate we were stuffed. The consistency of the chocolate fondue is a lot thinner than how I make it. Faith like it better. Me? It didn’t taste like chocolate to me, but more like a chocolate syrup, and I’m not really a chocolate syrup fan, so I like my simple chocolate fondue recipes better, but I might try making it a little thinner to see if my daughter likes it better. Still the Flaming Turtle was really good and super fun!
We had a wonderful evening eating, talking, and laughing. When we left The Melting Pot we headed to our hotel. More about our Mommy and Me Day in Part 2. 🙂
